Extreme Reading

Try to read the paragraph on the left. Keep trying. Most peoplel experience little difficulty in working out the meaning.

Here is what the paragraph actually says:
"THE PHENOMENAL POWER OF THE HUMAN MIND. According to research at Cambridge University, it doesn't matter in what order the letters in a word are, the only important thing is that the first and last letter be in the right place. The rest can be a total mess and you can still read it without problem. This is because the human mind does not read every letter by itself, but the word as a whole."
